Making site search engine friendly

P: n/a

I have a standard look to my site so I thought I might just make all the
pages .asp pages and use #include statements to grab all the common content,
however I want to be sure that all the big search engines crawl it without a
problem. I heard that some have problems with ASP even if the ASP is not
that complicated.

Wherever you heard it from, it's wrong. ASP is a server side
technology that's processed on the web server and delivers html to the
browser. It's the resulting html that search engines index.

the only problem with search engines sometimes is a lot of querystring
information which controls page content like a forum would use. some search
engines know what it is and avoid it or dont follow it forever

just having the extension ".asp" is not an issue though and should be just
as good as being ".htm" for the most part

if you really want ".htm" you can always go into IIS and set up ".htm" to
run as ".asp"

do a google search, there are plenty of examples out there
